10/7/10 update: in response to inquiries about the organizational by-laws, they are posted online here . Cascade Bicycle Club Annual Membership Meeting REI Seattle, 222 Yale Ave. N Thursday, Oct. 21 6:30 - 7:30 p.m.
This weekend is our final cycling event of the year, the 18th annual Kitsap Color Classic . In the past, the Kitsap Color Classic was held in early October. Weather proved to be highly unreliable, so we bumped it into September this year. So much for that! I've heard plenty of jokes about how summer came and went one day in July. Or was it August? I don't know; I think I might have been out of town that day. Or overslept. Lately the weather has been, as one local news outlet put it, " Sad, happy, sad ." I can't predict what the weather will be like later today, let alone Sunday morning, but I can tell you this: the Kitsap Color Classic is a pleasant ride. The scenery is lovely with tree-lined roads, water views and generally low traffic. Routes range from 14 miles to 64 miles. This weekend, Old Mill Days is being held in Port Gamble. On one hand, that may mean increased vehicle traffic as you get closer to Port Gamble on some of the longer routes. On the other hand, maybe the festival will provide an opportunity to rest and watch a wood chopping contest .
